Specials at GFES





Art instruction is provided to all students for one hour weekly. Students have the opportunity to work with a variety of mediums, which include clay, paints, drawing materials and paper.  All classes are aligned to the specific grade level’s curriculum. 

General Music

Students in grades K-6 receive weekly general music instruction. Children sing, listen, improvise, move to music, and play instruments.  

Physical Education

Two physical education (P.E.) teachers serve our school and instruct students in grades K to 6 for weekly instruction.  Appropriate dress for P.E. includes tennis shoes, socks and pants or shorts.  (Girls who wear a dress or skirt on days they have P.E. classes should also wear   shorts under the dress.)


All students have the opportunity to come to the library at least once a week to check out books and practice literacy and research skills.


Students in kindergarten and first grade get lessons in technology, helping them learn how to navigate online, learn some basic coding concepts, and practice critical and creative thinking skills.
